I went there this past Sunday, but the place was closed. I guess Mother's Day counts as a holiday.

I just stoped by today to check out the track. Man it is sure great! I ran a few laps with the CFO's car, and had some fun. I am going to start going every other Sunday. I hope to see you there!

Lightbulb Reminder we are having our Grand Opening this weekend

Hello everyone, just a reminder we are having our Grand Opening this weekend. We will have a race if we get enough people. Also for the month of July we will be waiving all practice fees so practice will be free.

Glad to be here.

Thanks for the welcome, yes I plan on being more active on here going forward.

Tomorrow is the official Grand Opening of R241. Our Race Software guys is unfortunately out sick today so we may not be able to run the race but we will still have Free practice and Free demo cars for those who would like to come by and give mini-Z's a try on the track. KO Propo will also be here unveiling some cool new stuff for the first time anywhere.

Hope to see you all their.

I am planning on coming today at around 2:30-ish and staying till you guys close -- I'm bringing a friend who's just getting started with Mini-Z's and could use some track time. I'm looking forward to it!

Driving the track at Route 241 Raceway

I spent about 4 hours on this track today with my MR03. On my 3rd lap, while getting up to speed, the car traction rolled and snapped the SSG t-plate. I bought a set of FRP plates from the track's store and was soon back running laps. It is a very cool track; not RCP, but a kind of fine, dense carpet. The rails are made of wood and the cars can take a beating. The staff do not allow foam tires to be used, only rubber tires (PN or Atomic are ok, as well as other makes). Apparently. someone recently "greased" the track when using foam tires laced with (probably) WD40 and that caused them problems, so no foam tires any more. The track is open to the public only on Sundays, except holidays. The track is available to the public for event scheduling. Practice running is free of charge and there is a timing system. The staff is helpful and friendly and the place is clean and bright. I'll be going back as often as I can.
